Climbing Roses, Beautiful Bouquet, Birthday Card

Only a few more days and this fun stamp set, "Climbing Roses" retires.  I will miss it, it's got a lot of fun pieces to it. I love the lattice thing in the background.  I sure does add a lot to the card.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Real Red card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black.  I textured a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock using the "Pinewood Planks" embossing folder. 

I die cut the lattice looking piece using Basic Black card stock. 

I stamped the flowers from the "Climbing Roses"set. I die cut them. I also cut a smaller flower and die cut it as well.  

I colored the flowers using the Real Red marker.  I don't have the Blends pen yet, but it's on my list to get next month.  I colored the inside parts of the flower using the Cherry Cobbler marker.  The leaves were colored in using the Granny Apple Green Blends pen, both light and dark.  

I die cut two leaves using Granny Apple Green. I also die cut the scalloped oval at the same time.

I stamped the words from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set and die cut them with the Stitched oval die.  I taped this piece to the scalloped oval die.  I had stamped the words close to the right side of the oval because I knew I'd be covering up part of the oval on the left. 

I glued the lattice piece in place and then set the flower piece on top using Dimensionals.  I taped the ovals in place, slipping them a little bit behind the flower piece.  I taped the ends of the leaves I die cut and slipped them under the oval and then I pressed the ovals in place. 

Next I set the smaller flower in place on top of the oval. I added a Dimensional behind it.  

And for the final touch I colored over the flowers with the "Wink of Stella" pen.  And that was it.  

This was a very fun card to make and I really enjoyed coloring it.

May 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Thank You Card

WOW, just like yesterday, the background looks pink.  It's really a white piece of chipboard.  It's from a 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper pack.  It must be the lighting in my workroom.  I don't know.  But it's not part of the card, it's just the background.

This was a fun card to create.  I had taken one of the small envelopes in the May 2019 Paper Pumpkin kits and trimmed it down to 3-1/8" x 4-1/2".  I liked the soft stripes on the inside and I was planning on using that side but as I was popping out the flower die cuts in the kit I thought it would be fun to place it over the matching flower that was stamped on the envelope and make a card of this.  So here's how I did it.

I stamped the "Thank You" that was in the kit and I used Pacific Point ink.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Balmy Blue.  I stamped around the edges using Bashful Blue ink and the dotted image from the kit.  I only stamped about 1" inward, there was no need to stamp the whole piece because the layers would hide it.

Then I took a 3-1/4" x 4-3/8" piece of Pacific Point card stock and taped the envelope piece to it.  I set the layers in place on the card base using Dimensionals.

I set the die cut flowers in place using Dimensionals. I lined them up over the flowers that were already printed on the envelope.

And lastly I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside and the card was one.

I did have to laugh though.  In an effort to use up the cards in the set I just created even more cards using the envelopes as a card.  Not that I don't think it's fun to get more cards from a kit than it was designed for but I have a ton of things to do and now I have even more cards to make!!

This was fun to make though. It was quick and I was glad that I could use the envelope to make a card.

Beautiful Bouquet, May 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card, Birthday Card

I do like the May 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit but I'm not a big fan of the note cards. I like full-sized cards.  SO I set out to make the note card a regular size card and this is what I came up with. 

This is one of my favorite layouts.  I use it mostly when there is a small image in a set. It focuses on it and really shows it off.  Suddenly that little image takes center stage!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Pool Party card stock.  The card stock was cut in half on the 8-1/2" side.  This card is folded at the top and opens at the bottom.  It can be cut to open at the side.  Either way works.

The Very Vanilla layer on top of the card base measures 3-1/2" x 4-5/8".  On top of the Very Vanilla is a 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock.  And on top of that is one of the note cards from the Paper Pumpkin kit.  I cut it to 2-7/8" x 4".  Now had I paid attention, I could have used the other side of the note card and cut it to 3-1/2" x 4-5/8".  It's vanilla on the one side and Pool Party on the other.  But I'm slow and didn't catch that right away.  I ended up cutting a piece of Very Vanilla.  But now I know and so do you!  But I did end up cutting it to 3-1/2" x 4-5/8" and taping it to the inside of the card.  So all was not lost after all! 

To make the holes on the top two pieces, I added a tiny dot of tape to the area where I thought the circle would be.  I made sure I lined up the edges as though the pieces were all taped up.  Then I took the 1-3/8" circle punch and punched through both pieces at the same time.  Then I took the 1-1/2" circle punch and punched an even ring from the first hole on the top piece.  This allows the Bermuda Bay color to show through as an inside border.  I taped those two pieces together.

The flower image from the Paper Pumpkin kit was stamped on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla using black Memento ink.  I colored the flowers using the Blends Pens. First I colored the entire flower in using the Light Petal Pink. Then I colored in some highlights using the Light Calypso Coral pen. Next I colored in the leaves using using the light and dark Granny Apple Green pen.  The coloring was so quick and easy with the Blends pens.  

I added some Dimensionals around the back of the circle on the Bermuda Bay piece.  I centered the colored flowers and set them in place.  I added some of the twine that came in the kit. I wrapped it around the panel three times and I taped the ends to the back.  I used snail to start and then added Scotch tape to hold the ends.  

Next I added Dimensionals all over the Bermuda Bay piece. I added snail tape to the piece that the flowers were on.  I set the piece in place on top of the Very Vanilla piece.  Then I added snail to the back of the Very Vanilla piece and set that in place using snail tape.  

I used one of the word panel pieces that were in the kit. The silver edging is a nice touch.  I stamped the words from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set using black Memento ink.  I set that piece in place over the twine using Dimensionals.  

This was fun to make and I was thrilled at the way it turned out.  Now I have a full-size card, just they way I like them! LOL

Perennial Birthday, Butterfly Gala, Birthday Card, Crossover Gate Fold Technique

Yesterday I had attended a swap and I posted the wiper card technique on my card.  I had also made the "Crossover Gate Fold" technique. A friend of mine at the swap had given me one of her swap cards a few months back and I had not participated in the swap and I had felt like I owed her a card.  SO, since I had some time on my hands (not really - I was doing laundry and my workroom is next to the laundry room and MY rule is you need to be near the washer in the event that it might go off balance.  Even in all the years I've had the machine it hasn't gone off balance, but there is that chance and I don't want to take it, right?  LOL) I played with this technique.

This is a super quick card to make.  Well, quicker than yesterday's card.  But all in all, it is a quick card.  You cut a piece of card stock 4-1/4" x 11", here I used Poppy Parade.  You score it on the long side at 2-3/4" and 8-1/4".  The score lines are folded in.  

I cut two piece of Poppy Parade Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the 6" x 6" Brights collection.  They measure 1-11/16" x 5".  I also cut two Basic Black pieces of card stock that measure 1-15/16" x 5-1/4".  I taped those two layers together.  I taped them on top of the card front.  Be sure to only tape to where the strip meets the card front.  I taped the left side on the top and the right side on the bottom.

The words are from the "Perennial Birthday" set. I stamped them on Whisper White card stock using black Memento ink.  I die cut them using the third longest thin rectangle die from the "Rectangle Stitched Framelits" dies.  For those of  you who don't have the dies, the piece measures just a hair over 3-1/4" x just a hair over 1-1/4".  I cut a piece of Basic Black card stock that was 1/8" larger than the stitched piece.  I taped those pieces together and then set it in place on the bottom panel using Dimensionals.  

The Whisper White butterflies are from the "Butterfly Beauty" thinlits that compliment the "Butterfly Gala" stamp set.  It's a fun and cheery set to play with.  The butterflies are die cut in one large piece so I had to cut the butterflies off of the large center butterfly.  I wasn't able to save the large butterfly but that's okay, I got four butterflies off it and two I'll save for another project some day down the road!  I set the butterflies in place using Dimensionals and Dimensional pieces.  I colored the butterflies with the Wink of Stella brush and when they dried I added a black faceted rhinestone to each one.  

The "Butterfly Beauty" thinlits also came with some tiny butterflies. I die cut one from a scrap of Poppy Parade card stock and glued it to the 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White piece I taped to the inside of the card.  I just put it in the bottom right corner for a little touch of fun!

I liked making this card. I thought it was a lot of fun.

Geared Up Garage, Perennial Birthday, Masculine Card, Wiper Technique

Tonight I will be participating in a card swap using the "Wiper" technique.  It's a pretty simple technique, it's just got a lot of pieces to it.  You can find a good tutorial here.  It's a You Tube tutorial and easy to follow.  I would explain it, but it's easier to follow the video.

For the front of my card I used the "Geared Up Garage" set.  I stamped the car on a 3-1/2" x 2-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  I colored the car using the Real Red marker. I don't have the Real Red Blends pen yet, but it will be in my next order!  I also used the Daffodil Delight marker on the lights and the Smoky Slate for the tires and grill.  I taped that piece to a 3-5/8" x 2-3/8" piece of Basic Black.  

The Real Red piece was cut 2-3/4" x 8".  The piece is folded in half and the car layers were taped to it.  I didn't want to tape the piece to the card front because the red would just blend in, so I cut  a 2-7/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Basic Black. 

I did add a 3-1/2" x 2-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside Real Red piece for writing the sentiment on. 

I die cut some Basic Black and Real Red gears for embellishment.  

The words on the side are from the "Perennial Birthday" set.  And the words on the wiper piece are from the "Geared Up Garage" set.  I added a gear to the end of the wiper piece.  

The technique is fun but not when you have to make a bunch for a swap.  LOL  

I have a couple of other wiper cards.  You can find one here and another one here.  

This would also make a great Father's Day card, don't you think?

Beautiful Bouquet, Climbing Roses, Thank You Card

The "Beautiful Bouquet" set is one I have not played with much but I do like it.  I had found a card on Pinterest that used little daisy die cut images and I didn't have anything like that in my stamping stash, so I went through my sets to look for one that had small flowers that might work.  And this is what I came up with.  

I did change this card a little too.  I had added an embossed strip of card stock between the scored lines.


The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  

I stamped the words from the soon to retire "Climbing Roses" set using Gorgeous Grape ink.

Next I stamped the flowers from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set using Highland Heather ink on three of them and Gorgeous Grape ink on the other three. I set them aside to dry.


Then I textured a 2-1/8" x 4-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock using the "Subtle" embossing folder.  I taped the strip in place on the front of the card using snail tape.  The bottom edge of the strip is about 1-3/8" from the bottom of the card.  

I die cut the flowers and then set them in place on the "Subtle" textured strip using Dimensionals.  I added some pearls to the center of each flower.  

The layout is the same as the card on Pinterest but the flowers and textured strip are different. Oh and the color is too.  

I thought it was a fun card to make. The flowers were fun to play with. I had some other die cutting to do, so I ran it through my Big Shot at the same time I did the flowers.  It saves time later when I'm ready to work on the cards the other pieces were intended for.  I don't know if it saves wear and tear on your Big Shot but I just like to be efficient.  And now when I find the time to work on that project, a lot of my die cutting will be all done and it will seem like a breeze to put those cards together!

Perennial Birthday, Petal Promenade, Birthday Card

WOW, here's another super simple and quick card.  You can use this layout with any Designer Series Paper (DSP) or stamped paper. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  This card opens at the bottom (the fold is at the top).  

The first thing I did was to stamp the words from the "Perennial Birthday" set using Mossy Meadow ink.  I had set the words up in my Stamparatus because I wanted to make sure I got them straight. I did end up inking and stamping it twice. One of the great things you can do when you use the Stamparatus.  SO that is why my words look a little darker.  I stamped the words first so I could figure out how long to cut the strips.

My strips of DSP were cut 1-3/8" x 2-1/2".  I cut three strips.  Then I cut three strips of Mossy Meadow that measured 1-1/2" x 2-5/8".  I taped those two layers together.  I added Dimensionals to the back of each panel.  With a pencil, I lightly marked the center of my card at the top.  I eyed the center of the middle panel and set it in place.  If you start in the center, the other two panels are easier to add.  I erased my pencil mark and the card was done.  I like to use a kneadable eraser.  If you don't have one, I highly recommend you getting one.  They last a very long time.  They remove graphite without leaving any marks on your paper or card stock, no matter how hard you rub it.  They are called kneadable because you can actually stretch it, roll it and form it into shapes.  I like to break pieces off and roll them into small tubes and replace the eraser in my mechanical pencil.  I won't work without one!

Today's card was fun to make. I like the looks of it and I LOVE how quick and simple it was to create.

Abstract Impressions, Thank You Card

It's a dark and rainy day here in Minnesota and today I thought I would make a fun spring card.  Something bright and cheery.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Highland Heather.  On top of that is a piece of Whisper White card stock cut 4" x 5-1/4".  On top of that is another piece of Highland Heather that was cut 3-3/4" x 5".  And the focal piece is Whisper White that was cut 3-1/2" x 4-3/4".  That's a lot of layers, but it's SO pretty that way.

I also cut a 3-1/2" x 2-1/8" piece of Highland Heather Designer Series Paper (DSP) from teh 6" x 6" paper pack. I love those paper packs. You get a big variety for your buck!

I eyed the space where the DSP would go so I wouldn't stamp below it.  I used Granny Apple Green and stamped the the image that had the most leaves/stems from the "Abstract Impressions" set on it.  Then I came back in with the smaller leaves/stems image and using Lemon Lime Twist ink.

The flowers were done next using Highland Heather ink and then the highlights of the flowers were done using Gorgeous Grape ink.

The words are from the same set and I stamped them using Granny  Apple Green ink. I die cut the words using the "Stitched Oval" dies. And the layer behind it was done using Highland Heather card stock and the scalloped oval die.  I taped the ovals together.  

I taped the DSP to the top Whisper White piece and then I added a piece of organza ribbon around the card and taped the ends on the back. I tied a bow and used a glue dot and set it in place on top of the ribbon.  I taped the rest of the layers together and taped them to the top of the card base.  

I added the words using Dimensionals and the card was done.

This was a fun card. It didn't brighten up the skies here but it did brighten my day!

Varied Vases, Butterfly Gala, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday Card

I had to laugh while I was making this card.  I did some things that made me raise my own eyebrows in dismay!  LOL

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Soft Sea Foam.  On top is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Soft Sea Foam that I stamped some tiny flower bunches on using Soft Sea Foam ink and I sponged the edges with Soft Sea Foam ink. I taped the stamped piece to the card base.

I cut a "Pearl Doily" in half and set it on the card front. Then I stamped the bumpy line image on Whisper White card stock.  I thought it would be great as a makeshift shelf so a brown would be a good color choice.  I colored it with the dark Soft Suede Blends pen.  Laughing at myself, I could have just stamped the image on Soft Suede card stock.  DUH! 

Then I took some vellum and used the "Starburst" punch and punched out two of them.  I cut the bottom off about 1/4" and I ran a little tape along the bottom to hold the two pieces together. I did add a little tape where the vase was going to be too.  It just needed a little extra hold. I also added tape to that same spot on the back so I had some in the inside holding the two pieces together and one on the back to hold it to the card.  

Next I stamped the vase from the "Varied Vases" set using Coastal Cabana ink.  I punched it out with the matching punch.  I set the vase in place using Dimensionals but only after I finished stamping and fussy cutting the flower cluster.  I had also added a little dot of Daffodil Delight to the center of each flower.  I glued the stem of the flower to the vellum and then the vase was added.  

I had an extra butterfly from a previous card so I just set it in place on the card with a Dimensional.  The butterfly is from the "Butterfly Gala" set.  

The words and border around the words are from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set. I used black Memento ink to stamp them.  I was thinking that maybe I should have used Bermuda Bay or Soft Suede to stamp the words.  It's kind of dark at the bottom of the card.  But as I look at it, my eyes move from the words to the vase to the butterfly, so it's got the artistic movement that a piece of artwork should have.  So I guess it's okay!

This was a fun card to make and maybe next time I will use colored card stock.  LOL  But it was simple enough to just color it with the Blends Pen.  Either way, the job got done!

Just Because, Thinking of You Card

While looking for samples using the "Just Because" set I ran across this gem.  I loved the Balmy Blue background but I was thinking about not making it because there was fussy cutting involved.  I convinced myself to suck it up and cut out the piece.  It's not like it had a bunch of flowers all over the place, it was pretty simple cutting. You can see the original card here.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  The fold is on the left.  This card opens on the right.  

I cut the Night of Navy piece at 4-1/4" x 2-7/8".  The Balmy Blue layer was cut using the "Stitched Rectangles" die.  For those of you who don't have the dies, the piece measures 2-5/8" x just a hair shy of 4".  Line your card stock just on the edge of the 4" mark and you will be close enough.

I stamped the image from the "Just Because" set.  I did mask off the words but I don't know why I bothered, I was fussy cutting the image.  Just not thinking I guess! LOL  After the fussy cutting I colored the image using Blends Pens.  I used Night of Navy light.  Granny Apple Green, light and dark.  I also used Daffodil Delight, light and dark and just the light Pumpkin Pie.  I didn't get the same effect on the vase as the original image.  I read later that Balmy Blue Blends was used. I didn't have that color. So I took out my Night of Navy marker and my blender pen and worked in the color on the lighter side.  

The words are from the same set. I set them up in the Stamparatus so I could be sure to get them straight and I stamped them using Night of Navy ink.  

I taped the layers together. I added the image using Dimensionals and for the final touch I used some glitter enamel dots that I colored with the Night of Navy Blends pen.  Let them dry a few minutes before using them. 

And that was it.  This was a pretty simple card to make and I do like how it turned out.

Butterfly Gala, Beauty Abounds, Dandelion Wishes, Get Well Card

I really LOVE butterflies.  The "Beauty Abounds" and "Butterfly Gala" sets have some fun butterflies to play with. I liked making this card because it was pretty quick and simple.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Highland Heather.  And the focal piece was cut 3-3/4" x 5".  

I stamped the butterfly from the "Butterfly Gala" set using black Memento ink. I set them aside for a few minutes to dry.  In the meantime I stamped the words from the "Dandelion Wishes" set using black Memento ink.  I set it aside to dry.  Then I punched out the two butterflies.  I colored them using the Highland Heather Blends pens.  I just colored the whole butterfly with the light pen and then came back with the darker pen in the middle and on the edges.  I added Dimensionals to the back and set them aside.

I stamped the Highland Heather bubbles from the "Beauty ABounds" set.  Then I stamped some Lemon Lime Twist bubbles using the smaller bubble image.  

I took some gold thread and wrapped it around the 3-3/4" part of the card stock. I used a glue dot to hold the raw ends. Then I found center or close to it and pressed that into the glue dot to hold it.  Sometimes I twist them to give them a figure 8 look, it just depends on if the thread will cooperate.  I set the thread in place on the card front towards the bottom right.

I took the "Starburst" punch and punched out the Highland Heather piece from the same 4" x 5-1/4" piece that I am going to use for the layer.  No one will ever know it's missing.  I taped the Starburst piece to the word piece and added Dimensionals to the back.  

I taped the Highland Heather layer to the card base.  Then I taped the focal piece to the card base.  I added the word piece and then the butterflies.  See, I told you it was quick and simple!  Oh and pretty too!!

Geared Up Garage, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Masculine Birthday Card

One more "Geared Up Garage" card before I move onto something else.  This is such a fun set.  I found this card on Pinterest.  I only made a couple of changes to it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Bermuda Bay card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock.  I stamped the car image on it using Bermuda Bay ink and I sponged the edges with Bermuda Bay ink. I taped the piece to the card base.

Next I took a 4" x 1-7/8" piece of Sahara Sand card stock and textured it with the "Subtle" embossing folder. I cut a 4-1/8" x 2" piece of Sahara Sand card stock for the layer.  After texturing the smaller piece, I sponged the edges with Sahara Sand ink.  I taped those two layers together and I set them in place on the card front using Dimensionals.

I die cut the largest "Stitched Circle" die and stamped the bolts using Crushed Curry ink. I stamped the smoky part using Smoky Slate ink.  I set the circle in place on the top of the card using snail tape on the left and Dimensionals on the right.

Then I stamped and die cut the car out. I colored it with the Smoky Slate marker. I colored the lights in using the Crushed Curry marker.  I set the car in place using Dimensionals.

And for the final touch, I stamped the words from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set using black Memento ink.  I punched them out and set them in place on the Sahara Sand layer. I used snail tape on the left side and a Dimensional on the right. 

I didn't have any of the matching Baker's Twine like the original card did, but that's okay, I like it without it. 

This card was fun and easy to make.  I think it would also make a great Father's Day card!

Geared Up Garage, Father's Day Card, Masculine Card

I always seem to purchase a masculine set when the new catalog or occasions catalogs come out.  One can never have enough masculine sets, plus there aren't that many masculine sets out there. I found this card on Pinterest.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Crushed Curry.  On top of it is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Crushed Curry that was stamped with the car image from the "Geared Up Garage" set, using Crushed Curry ink.  The edges were sponged with Crushed Curry ink. The piece was set in place on the card base using snail tape.

I took a piece of Basic Gray card stock and die cut the largest "Stitched Circle".  I stamped the bolts and the "smoke" image using Basic Gray ink.  I set that in place on the card using Dimensionals.  

I stamped the card using black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock.  I die cut it with the matching die.  I used a blender pen and Crushed Curry ink to color the car in.  I set the car in place using Dimensionals.  

Next I took a scrap piece of Whisper White and stamped the words.  They were set in place using snail tape on the right side and Dimensionals on the left side.  

This was a very quick and simple card to make.  I would like to make something like this using a different color and making it into a masculine birthday card.

Beautiful Bouquet, Birthday Card, April 2019 Paper Pumpkin


Today's card was a fun one.  I  found this card on Pinterest and wanted to make it but I got busy with our annual garage sale and I misplaced my Paper Pumpkin pieces.  Now that the sale was over and I was able to locate my stuff, I sat down at my clean table and worked on this card.  It did involve fussy cutting but I survived it! LOL


The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Gray Granite.  It's not a color I thought I would use much, but it's starting to grow on me.  I had textured it using the "Layered Leaves" embossing folder.  

I had cut one of the cards from the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit and used the blank side for the big white layer.  It was cut at 3-1/2" x 4-3/4".  I took my Gray Granite marker and flicked the color on.  This is done by inserting the tip of the marker back inside the cap about 1/4" and pushing outward to cause the pen to flick ink.  It's pretty easy once you know what you are doing but I'm concerned that it will weaken the tips of my markers if done too much.

The other side of the note card has the round circle images.  Click on the photo to see the image closer.  It's a circle with little lines going through it.  It's a nice soft look.  That piece was cut 1-3/4" x 4-3/8".  I did save the other half, I'm going to make two cards, but not today.  

The thinner layer was from the same kit, it was another little note card.  I cut it at 1-1/8" x 4".  

Next I stamped three of the flower images using Flirty Flamingo ink.  I set them aside to dry while I stamped two leaf images using Mint Macaron ink.  I set them aside to dry. 

I took the word piece and stamped it using the words from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set and Gray Granite ink.  I set that aside to dry. 

Then I fussy cut the flower.  I cut the outside piece first.  Then I cut the center part (because it was easier to see than the second layer).  And lastly I cut the second layer.  After I was done cutting the flowers, I took my bone folder and curled the petals a bit.  Then I cut out the leaves and gave the center one a little curl.  

I took the white piece and taped the circle layer on the right side. Then I taped the word layer on top of that and off set it to the left.  

I taped the big flower piece on top of the two layers I just set in place.  Then I added the center layer of the flower using a Dimensional.  The center of the flower was added using a Dimensional as well.  

I taped the leaves in place and then I added the word piece using Dimensionals.  The kit came with some enamel dots.  I had used all but two of the Mint Macaron ones so I had to use some of the Flirty Flamingo ones.  

Now I was ready to add the white piece to the card front.  I set it in place with Dimensionals.  I thought the center of the flower looked to blah so I added a faceted gem to it and that did the trick!  I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside of the card and it was done.

I do like this card. It caught my eye on Pinterest and I is still appealing to me.
